5 Minute Drawer Organizers

We have a drawer of "office supplies."  Pens.  Sharpie markers.  Colored pencils.  Scotch tape.  Calculators.  Somehow it's always a big mess.  Until today when I was finally fed up with it.  I didn't get a "before" picture of our messy drawer, but here's the "after."

And it only took five minutes!  Why have we been living with a messy drawer for years?!

Want to make your own?

Grab some empty boxes.  I used two empty tissue boxes and the top and bottom of a cereal box.  (I just used packing tape to tape the ends of the cereal box back together.)

Place your box in the drawer you'd like it to fit in.

Mark where the top of the drawer is on your box.

Measure down from there an inch or two with the line going all the way around the box.

Cut along the lower line.

Place the desired items in your new organizer...

...and enjoy the fruits of your (5 measly minutes) of labor!

Free and fast.  Now that's my kind of craft.  :)
